Welcome Dungeons & Dragons Online™: StormReach™ players! With the upcoming content patch next week, you will be able to create and apply custom skins to your user interface! And with that, LotROInterface goes dual-purpose.
Back in November, Quarion of Turbine’s Dungeons & Dragons Online community contacted us about the possibility of us providing fan-site support for the upcoming custom ui skinning for DDO. Obviously we jumped at the chance!
Given that the mechanics of custom ui skinning in DDO is the same as it is in LotRO, with their permission we decided to make this site serve both games, at least for now. Much of the developer information that you read in the LotRO forums applies equally to DDO. The main difference, obviously, is the file names and sizes. But the methodology is the same for either game.
We have a tutorial for creating custom user interface skins in DDO in our Guides & Tutorials
In addition, we have created a separate set of forums and download categories for DDO on our site. As well, Quarion provided a UI Skin Package which is available in the Developer Utilities
for DDO download category. You can get it here
. (Aka, this file is for meant for authors to use in the creation of custom interfaces, not for end-users).
So again, welcome DDO players! We look forward to seeing the creative skins you come up with to enhance the enjoyment of the game for many!
